Real Steel - Trailer
Director Shawn LevyYear 2011Genre(s) Kids, Family
Charlie Kenton is a former boxer who finds he's given a huge opportunity to make something of his life when he and his estranged son team up to build a robot to fight in a new extreme sport called robot boxing, a hi-tech sport that's become one of the most profitable forms of entertainment in the world.
Against all the odds Charlie and his son Max build a robot which could be a contender for the world title.
For the movie, the production team decided that CGI wasn't a good enough option alone and they commissioned the building of 19 giant animatronics robots to use in the film with the addition of some CGI in fight scenes.
Based on a short story by 'I Am Legend' writer Richard Matheson.
